Hello, and welcome. My name is Samson, and I have sound-to-color synesthesia.

Synesthesia, simply put, is a neurological phenomenon that causes my brain to automatically associate sounds with color. This more or less creates an effect where I "see" sounds, sometimes more vividly than others. I've had this neurological quirk my whole life, and it's just a part of how I see and experience the world.

Since 2020, I've been painting and sharing how I see sound with the world both on TikTok and through offering custom commissions based on submitted sound recordings. I've painted everything from the voices of loved ones to music of many genres to a molten hot cube of metal being dropped into a jar of mayonnaise. (Yes, that last one actually happened, and you can buy the print of it, if you're so inclined.)

If I have the ability to see and paint sounds, I want to capture as many different types of sound in my art as possible while I have the chance. Along the way, I've been helping people gain confidence in their own voice, remember loved ones from a distance, and more. For this reason, I keep my commissions open as often as possible, and there will be a note on the listings if I am not currently accepting commission orders.

I'm currently working on a year-long project that will mean more song paintings, so expect more print options soon! More information on my TikTok. Keep an eye out for future announcements and song features. As always, thank you all so much for your support. It means the world to me, and I can't thank you enough.

Sincerely,
Samson (he/him)

How to order your custom piece:

After checkout, you should receive an email with your confirmation number. Reply to that email with your selected sound clip! Please refer to the guidelines on the product listing for sound clip lengths and idea suggestions. I'm very flexible with file types - just please make sure I have any necessary permissions to access the file (especially if you're sharing a social media link).

Paintings can take anywhere from a few days to up to 4 weeks; it all depends on how long my commission to-do list is at the given moment. If you would like your piece sent to you by a certain date, PLEASE indicate this at the time you order and try to order at least a week in advance, or I can't guarantee you'll get it in time.

** Please understand that if you order a piece and I never receive a usable sound clip, or if I have no way of contacting you to get that sound clip, I won't be able to create your custom commission. While you're able to send in your sound clip at any point after ordering, I can't start the process without knowing what I'm painting or who I'm supposed to be getting it to. Thanks! **
